Up to date information is presented regarding post-operative rehabilitation following fracture stabilization, ligament reconstruction, tendon repair, and joint procedures of the ankle/foot. Participants will explore conditions that contribute to knee injury, and progress to an in-depth review of the anatomy of this largest joint in the human body. Common injuries and pathologies will be explored, as will some of the medical interventions shown to be the most effective at preventing knee damage and facilitating return to activity following injury.
This course will help practitioners choose appropriate therapeutic interventions based on patient presentation and patient goals. Video clips throughout the presentation hone participant implementation of key skills and enable immediate integration into clinical practice.
